Ready or not... I'm counting on not!

I am not sure why, but this has been an extremely difficult pregnancy on my body. Each week I am grateful for having made it this far, and I can only hope to make it to October 23. I have now been to the hospital 3 times (1 was because I had vertigo) and the other two times were to be monitored.

This past Sunday I woke up with a horrible backache. I really thought it was because I worked really hard the day before and my body was just not use to it. But Monday came and the ache continued. It wasn't until Monday night that I knew something wasn't right. I woke up two or three times due to contractions. So today, of all days, I went to see the doctor to make sure everything was going smoothly. By the time I made the appointment, I could barely keep it together, and I was terrified that something was majorly wrong. She sent me to the hospital to have the FFN test, and to be monitored. The test came back negative, which was a huge sigh of relief. However, I did have 4 contractions while I was there. I had to laugh, because according to them, once I hit 6 contractions, then I needed to come back!! SO I guess I'm suppose to wait it out, and hope that I don't start having 6 contractions an hour... BUT what do I do for the pain until I have her?? I have been blessed with a wonderful family. Even better, I was blessed to have married into a great family too!! Two weeks ago Mark's cousin, Aunt Susie and Grandma Maroney threw me a baby shower. Honestly, it was really hard for me, only because I felt I shouldn't have one since I had one with Grant. But Kimberly persisted, and I am so glad that she did. I had an awesome time getting to know the Maroney girls. My mom, Megan and Macki were able to come too! Which made it all the much better!!
I am no where near ready for Cami JoAnn to come. She needs to bake a little longer too! Mark and I purchased the crib set above. I was so excited, because I went with hand me downs for Grant (which I am grateful for!!). I am just so excited for this little girl to make her grand entrance into this world... In 57 days!!!!
